Swimsuits and Filipinos

Yep, it’s summer once again. It’s that time of year where midday feels like hell and of course and the time for the usual company outing. A lot of us hate summer because most people would drag you to go the beach or resorts with swimming pools. I for one hate going to public pools. I hate them for 3 reasons. First, public pools are always so full of people; second, every Tom, Dick, and Harry probably pees in them; and third, I hate having to wear swimsuits, even one piece swimwear.

Though I’ve been blessed with a face that could launch a thousand ships, sadly, I have a body that could probably sink them all. It’s not that I’m obese I’m just not blessed with the right curves. Though in other countries, plus sized women wearing swimwear is natural, in the Philippines, people would definitely talk and point at those chubby persons wearing one.

Thankfully, those opinionated people who do that have dwindled. Now, if you can stomach seeing yourself in a swimsuit, you can do so with LESS fear that everyone is staring and talking about you. Hopefully, in the future, we will all be open-minded enough to just mind our own businesses.
